Strange sensation in abdomen, numbness. What does it indicate? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
Dr I m having a strange feeling around my abdomen
and it looks like it bulged up a little bit
Where on the abdomen do you feel numbness?
to the right side
Is there any pain?
not any pain
May I know your age?
Is it on the upper part of right side or the lower side?
right below the right rib cage
Do you have any yellow colouration of your eyes?
Do you feel nauseating or vomiting?
nope nothing of such
How is your appetite?
How is your bowel movements?
Normal i guess
Let me guide you regarding this.
According to your history, it seems that you are not having any serious issues.
But, why you have the abnormal sensation or fullness of the right upper abdomen needs to be examined.
If it is interfering with your normal life, then you will have to visit a gastroenterologist.
its not much interfering
but i m not sure whats going on
i also have gastric issues
do you think it is related
If you are having gastric issues, it can cause discomfort in the left upper abdomen, central abdomen, chest and throat.
But not in the right abdomen,
You will require certain blood tests to be done along with the sonography of abdomen,
ok if its liver enlargment
what other symptons should i have having
I am not saying it will be liver enlargement. And liver enlargement can be due to various causes.
So, the symptoms vary to a large extend.
i have stool abnormalities
but that happens only when i eat outside food for more than two days continously
mostly loose motions
It cannot be related to liver issues.
that wont go away for more than two days
Please do not try to find if you have anything from the symptoms. It depends on many things.
ok, one more thing
when i say right adbomen
its very near to the belly button
to the right of it
and one more thing, i m having a very high gas formation these days
You said you were having it just below your rib cage.
yes but at the centre right
In that case, it can be related to gas problems.
it more feels like the skin and fat on stomach
and one more thing Dr
whenever there is excess gas, why do i have pain near my heart
what happens is like, i feel a little pain at my heart
and then suddenly i could sense my heart skipping a beat
and then i burp and gas goes away
Yes. It is possible.
That is one of the common symptoms of gas problems.
sometimes when the gas gets struck and it pains a two three seconds at heart and there is nerve or something that shakes near the heart or i dont know if its the heart skipping a beat and then the gas comes out
does this gas issue cause me trouble to heart later on
It is just the feeling like that. Because all these (heart, stomach and food pipe) are supplied by nerves in the same area.
So to the brain, it feels all the same.
No, gas issue does not cause problem to the heart anytime.
if not the nerves at heart i sometimes feel the same kind on my head
and how should i reduce the gas doctor
what should i do
i m eating nothing outside
i stopped smoking
You need to first see what is causing the gas.
You need to first get examined and find if any issues are there.
Then you will need to take medications for controlling the problem.
Along with it some changes in the life style is required.
You can do the following.
1. Avoid spicy and oily food.
2.have meals at regular times.
3. Every 2 hours have snacks.
4. Avoid smoking, and alcohol intake.
6. Drink plenty of water regularly.
7. Regular physical activity.
These steps along with medication can get your gas problems under control.
Are you following me?
but water intake causes a lot of gas for me
Hope this was helpful.
whenever i drink lot of water it casues lot of gas
That is if you are not having enough physical activity.
i m very scared of physical activity
If you don't do it regularly, then you are having more chances of getting a heart attack.
That is what latest researches say.
ok doctor i would work on the given instructions
Fine. I am sure, you will feel much healthier if you follow the above steps.
Hope this was helpful.
Wish you a good health.
Is there anything else I can help you on?
